Re: SNL general discussion thread

After the opening it’s been pretty funny.

Have they done fake commercials during the real commercials before?

Always curious is Disney gets pissy about those kinds of sketches

Is Musgraves only wearing a guitar and boots?

Wonderful to see the Norm tributes. "That's my lucky stabbin' cap" never fails to make me

Her dream had come true. She was a folk singer.

Solid premiere. I really enjoyed it. You can definitely tell they added new writers this season. New featured player James Austin Johnson came out swinging on his first show. He was ten times better and funnier than Bowen Yang ever was. And thankfully Yang was only used briefly in one skit this week. Hell, Andrew Dismukes is also ten times better than him too. And should have been the one promoted. Also liked the Norm Macdonald tribute. Where was Kate McKinnon btw?

Owen Wilson's delivery during the monologue was great.

Was an ok episode.

For a split second when Owen Wilson showed up in the Covid sketch, I thought it was Screech.

I wonder why Kate McKinnon wasn’t there.

pretty bad episode. Especially for a season premiere. The only funny parts were 25 year old Norm Macdonald jokes.

Was that the first time Melisa Villasenor appeared as AOC? Seems like an obvious gag, they should have done it way sooner.

I don’t know, but that cold open roasting the Democrats was pretty damn hilarious for someone like me who follows politics very closely.

Especially the writing on that one.

Joe Biden oddly sounded like Owen Wilson a bit.

I wonder how AOC did not get spoofed earlier and maybe the first time ever on SNL.

Jost was the only guy that did not wear a mask for the closing credits?

Kacey looked like she put on some weight maybe post divorce but the songs were not that bad.

WU and the cars sketch killed.

For some reason that Joe Buck FOX sketch should have killed but it seemed like they rehashed a similar idea when they did a spoof on the TNT NBA and their bottom of the screen promotions for upcoming shows.

Good for Lorne for casting James Austin Johnson as Joe Biden and using him in the very first cold open sketch, right off the bat!

I'm getting Darrell Hammond vibes from James Austin Johnson - If he keeps up this pace, I see him becoming a major utility player in the coming years.

I think the Bezos Star Trek thing was the highlight.

And props to have Luke Wilson play the brother.

that and the funeral sketch were amusing but they felt like they were building up to something and just ... stopped. Though they at least tried with ignition on the funeral one.

I thought she played AOC in a past season. Maybe I'm not remembering it right.

That's who I thought it was for a while. I thought he lost a lot of weight and it just made him look younger under the makeup.

The funeral sketch - thought it was odd to have that in the first episode 2 weeks after Norm Macdonald dies. Personally, I would've just used it in the next episode.

A gift to all the people who complain that there is too much Kate McKinnon in every show.

No, you're right; she's played her two or three times before.

I believe she is filming a Miniseries about the Tiger King. That seemed to happen a lot in the 90's when peoples careers took off but they still were part of the cast but only showed up a few times a season.

Thats what Kate is doing, playing Carole Baskin. Hoping she’s back next week, though.

Ah, that must have been pre-Covid, when I didn't always watch SNL every single week.

My guess is that the more senior players like McKinnon , Strong, and Davidson are going to most likely stay on until Lorne hits his goal of 50 seasons but only participate in a limited capacity. Maybe come back for the big holiday shows but the rest of the time let the new people do the heavy lifting on the sketches.
